Genomic technologies are generating an extraordinary amount of information, unprecedented in the history of biology. Bioinformatics addresses the specific needs in data acquisition, storage, analysis and integration that research in genomics generates.
Computational neuroscience (also known as theoretical neuroscience or mathematical neuroscience) is a branch of neuroscience which employs mathematical models, theoretical analysis and abstractions of the brain to understand the principles that govern the development, structure, physiology and cognitive abilities of the nervous system.
CRISPR: A game-changing genetic engineering technique
Neuroscience (or neurobiology) is the scientific study of the nervous system.It combines physiology, anatomy, molecular biology, developmental biology, cytology, mathematical modeling, and psychology to understand the fundamental and emergent properties of neurons and neural circuits.The understanding of the biological basis of learning, memory, behavior, perception, and consciousness has been described by Eric Kandel as the "ultimate challenge" of the biological sciences.
